Begin with a warm and friendly greeting to your entire church, then introduce your pastor in a manner dependent on his or her personality. If he or she is light-hearted, then try to open with a joke; if the pastor prefers a more serious approach however, then you should keep things simple. State your purpose and then move on to the body of the speech.

As for the rest of your occasion, don't worry too much about how well-written everything is. Focus on communicating your message of gratitude to the pastor and the church. The simpler or more natural you sound when delivering your speech, the more genuine it will feel to your audience and to the pastor him or herself.

Remember that you're celebrating an anniversary, which means that you are also celebrating a community from its longest-standing members to its new arrivals. This is a community that your pastor has fostered for an impressive seventeen years. Every person seated in the pews will likely be a part of your pastor's pride, so don't be afraid to direct your speech to everyone.

Ask yourself questions, then answer them.

What has your pastor accomplished over the past year, and how has he made an impact on not just your church community, but on your community as a whole? How has your pastor influenced your life? How do you hope to pay back his years of exceptional service to you and the other members of your church?

Occasion speeches come from the heart and they rely on the connection you share with your subject and your audience, and you know what you want to say to your pastor better than anybody else would.

If you're still struggling to find the right words as the deadline approaches, then consider making it a group effort. Messages of gratitude tend to be more heart-warming when they are communal. At the very least, your fellow churchgoers might be able to provide you with additional information about the pastor's work over the past year.
